Hate Crime Legislation Update!

by @ 12:08 pm. Filed under Gay News, Hate Crimes, hate speech

Jim Burroway at Box Turtle Bulletin offers a challenge:

Focus on the Family, Exodus, Family Research Council, Traditional Values Coalition, Mission America — all of them have repeated some serious outright lies about what the proposed legislation would do. And several individuals associated with these organizations have done the same.And so here’s a challenge. I have posted the actual proposed legislation in full on my web site. You will find the text after the jump below. I dare them to do the same. And I challenge them to point to any part of the bill which would usurp the First Amendment.
